Gainful Employment Disclosures

For a certificate program to be considered eligible for federal Title IV aid, the program must lead to "gainful employment in a recognized occupation."

The U.S. Department of Education requires that institutions provide students with information regarding total costs for tuition and fees, graduation rates and debt-to-earnings ratios for gainful employment programs.

In compliance with federal Title IV regulations, Tarrant County College has provided information on our certificate programs leading to gainful employment.
